The vast structure was built by the late Countess Nadia de Navarro-Farber on St. Croix. The beachfront Caribbean castle can be yours if you have $15 Million.
John Foster Real Estate agent Peter Briggs, along with Calabash Real Estate lists the property. He described the structure as overlooking the coast of St. Croix. Completed in 1989, the late countess conceptualized the castle. It is roughly ten thousand square feet which boasts six bedrooms. A lofty, round road with terraced gardens surrounds the property and according to Briggs, the structure’s breathtaking backdrop would pass as a fantastic setting for a Hollywood spy movie.
Inside, a rounded ceiling is illustrated to look like a blue cloudy sky, and there is a huge flower-shaped column with its petals incorporated as part of the ceiling. There is a pool house with a swimming pool and a 3-bedroom caretaker’s small house outside the castle.
An exclusive pier is also included in the beachfront area that was at some point a section of the old West Indies Lab of Fairleigh Dickinson University that the late countess purchased after Hurricane Hugo damaged it back in the 90’s. According to Briggs, the now unused buildings are outlined so prospective buyers can make that section of land into a business – be it restaurant or resort- if they want to.
The Bulgarian- born Countess Navarro-Farber lived mostly in Long Island and spent mostly 4 months every year in St. Croix and entertained quite often. Briggs added that there were quite a few stories about the Countess’ amazing lifestyle. Yuri Farber, the countess’ husband, decided to sell the structure as he doesn’t go there as much since the Countess’ demise in 2014.
